Default Basement Permit - Room Drawing

Just wondering what programs you guys/gals used to submit building permits to the city.

I'm anti pen and paper whenever I can help it, so an electronic version would be awesome.

I've tried a few room planners online and they all work fairly well. Just wondering if anyone can speak from experience in terms of which is better.

Thanks!

Personally I just use adobe Illustrator as it's more flexible than most programs outside of autocad.

I used Visio - I had it for work anyway and it has templates for all the stuff you'll need to show. The city requirements are pretty simple though so you don't have to get too sophisticated.
